VNL F6 W: Brazil crushed China for top place in Pool A

1146 0

In the derby of the Pool A at the Final Six of the FIVB 2018 Volleyball Nations League, Brazil celebrated victory in three sets (25-20, 25-22, 25-22) over China and took the top position after two wins.

  

Brazil and China will play in the semifinal of the VNL but today’s match decided which team will go from the top position. That is Brazil.

Tandara Alves Caixeta once again was the leader of the team with 19 points (16 att, 1 bl and 2 ac) followed by Gabriela Braga Guimaraes 14 points and Adenizia Da Silva 10 points.

China were never really able to put their opponents under sustained pressure, despite another stellar performance from captain Zhu Ting, who contributed 13 points while middle blocker Xinyue Yuan was also strong with 8 points. 

Brazilian captain Roberta da Silva Ratzke after the match said: “I am happy about the game. I am happy about the attitude of the team today. We found our tempo even when we knew it was going to be a tough game. We went to the court to do our best. Today’s experience was great and now we have to rest for a while so we can play against Turkey tomorrow.” 

The home captain Zhu Ting said: “I want to congratulate Brazil for winning this match. We did not do our best today. We wasted some important changes so that is something that we need to improve tomorrow."

Brazil – Turkey 15:00 local time (09:00 CET)

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply

If Russia had won the match even in 5 sets they would have classified because they would have ended up with same number of victories than us but one more point. So before the last set against China ended USA was not classified Reply
